Pendleton. Afterwards. Dr. Florence Gilman of 

Smith College read a paper ,,n " I'he Making of a 
Department of Hygiene in a Large Collegi

Alice Holding of Randolph. Macon College on " Track 
and Field Athletics for Women." Both papers were 
fully discussed. In the afternoon there was .\n 
exhibition of Charts, Tracings and Photographs

leges, followed by discussion. The department 
gave a demonstration in honor :'i the delegates in 
the evening. 

Saturday morning, after the business meeting, 
there was a demonstration of Eurhythmies pre- 
sented In the teacher of music in the Franklin 
School, Buffalo, X. V., and her assistant. It not

I in' iocietj question always presents itself e 

forcibly al this season of upheaval than a1 the coi 
responding period in the fall. Al this time 
we .uc more conscious of the defects of even our 
carefully contrived system (when the brevity of the 
lists makes omissions and inclusions more conspicu- 
ous.) And annually some ol us go over again the 
same ground: Are these societies worth the fuss 
we make over them, the time and labor of hard- 
working committees, the unhappiness of the dis- 
appointed, the general exaggerated importance with 
which the whole mailer is for a few weeks invested? 
In spiic oi the absurdity of adding to the already 
disproportionate emphasis the subject is receiving, 
il seems nol amiss In have out sometimes for an 
airing some of our old arguments, loseeif they need 
to be thrown away, or if any new combinations 
occur to us. We are not safe yet, some people tell 
us, in assuming thai we are acting more wisely than 
those sister colleges which have eliminated the 
society problem by the simple device of abolition. 
\\ In has Wellesley held fast to its societies? 
Because the Wellesley societies were so different 
in character and intention from those of, for in- 
■• Wn rrr! Holj oki and Barnard; as to be 
worth an effort to save them? Because the exist- 
ence of I he society houses made our societies 
facts too stubborn lo lie easily swept away? Cer- 
tainly (here \wrr traditions and associations in the 
case of the Wellesley societies which made them 
hopeful ground for an attempt to work out a society 
system on thai paradoxical basis, democratic choice. 
A1 any rate, it has been an interesting experiment, 
and so far justified that it would be hard to find 
anyone acquainted with conditions past and pres- 
ent who would choose to go back to the old 
plan rather than follow the present system, with 
all its defects. 

1 ndoubtedly the present system is fairer than 
the old one. Btit are societies fair at all? What de- 
fence of them can we honestly make? Few to-day 
would believe, and no one would dare to contend 
thai "in give pleasured) I he members" is a satisfac- 
tory or comfortable answer. We feel bound to pre- 
sent some argument consistent with the community 
good. Of course, ii is the familiar "Better respons- 
ible cliques than irresponsible cliques." But do 
societies under the present system, or under any 
system, prevent the existence of the conscienceless, 
selfish, snobbish clique, more or less closely banded 
together? Not the group of friends naturally consort- 
ing because of congeniality of interests, and remain- 
ing cordiall) receptive thers, and alive to the 

1 ] -''""- ol the community; but the inhospitable, 
i lose corporation, with its members owning no loyal 
ty to the Kueei group in which their life is placed— 
1 pes ol organized i Ifi hness. We know perfectly 
"'" that -in h groups, inimical to the besl develop- 
ment of our general life, do exisl here as in any col- 
lege of the size of this; do th< societies acl if not as 

absolute preventh e, i ial n medj ' Very 

"!"'' ol u- who have watched conditions here will 
lll; "" our com iction th it societies as we hat i 

them do ret nsidi rable help against this 

condition. I'm th ti maj be held responsible to 

'I"' community, lis members feel an obligation 
to one in i and to tl liege. The 

*) B iv es some training in the respect of 

oilier people's rights. These are battered truisms, 
1,111 ' truism is none the less true for being battered. 
1 nder the present system the members ol a society 
tend to be somewhat more unlike each other than 
was the case formerlj ; though the difficulty in this 
respect between "then "and "now" is less, per- 
haps, than we imagine. Thesociet) gives its mem- 
ber- discipline in variety of point of view which 
no smaller group, self-selected, can afford. 

Is il possible to consider favorably the other de- 
fence of our societies, under the present system; the 
notion thai the) serve as a reward to the worthy? 
Of course, society' membership is agreeable, and, 
on the whole, beneficial. Societies may do harm; 
though the evils of snobbishness and selfishness 
are less flagrant than they used to be, the evils of 
extravagance and of time-wasting are, if anything, 
more in evidence. But the benefits of societies are 
clear. They add to the graciousness and interest 
of life here. They give practise not only in 
bearing and forbearing, but in the courtesies of 
hospitality. They give happy opportunities for 
bringing together the various Wellesley gen- 
erations. No question but the society pre- 
sents a reward, if we like to think of it so. But re- 
garded as a system of rewards, the society plan 
leaves much to be desired. No matter how con- 
scientiously the various committees perform their 
duties, no matter how carefully the various claims 
are scrutinized, the eligible list selected, and the 
placement arranged, somehow the rewards 
seems not to come out very equally. There will be 
be on the eligible list occasional omissions and in- 
clusions due in some measure to accident or for- 
tune rather than to faults or merits; to individual 
limitations or opportunities; to the inevitable falli- 
bility of the human beings through whose agency 
the cumbrous machine is worked. Minor defects 
in our plan may be pointed out and remedied; but 
so long as the barrier between eligible and ineligible 
remains so tenuous, there will always be some 
sense of grievance. 

( >l the three possibilities open to us in our con- 
sideration of the society- problem, which is most 
advantageous to the college of a whole? To forego 
the societies entirely, benefits and all. because we 
can see no other way to eliminate unfair discrim- 
ination; to continue with our present plan, recogniz- 
ing its inadequacy and, so far as possible, remedy- 
ing its minor defects; or to establish en,. ugh so- 
cieties so thai every junior and senior of diploma 
grade and good citizenship shall have, if she de- 
sires, the enjoyment of society privileges? Is it 

.liter one reconstruction to sel about new 

plans for bettering this large factor in the social 
life of the college?

Mr. Hubbert, Deputy Commissioner of the 

• m his work last 

Friday night. He strongly brought out the new 

fum tion of the prison, thai of refitting men for so- 

I hi primary object of thi i m was 

to keep men in jail and thi quipments justified 

thi ol I In in v method of helping men to live 

over again requires an absolute!) new equipment, 
the doing away with uniformity. The need- arc 
great, including a hospital, schools, a library, gym- 

na i i chapel, a dining-room and a method of 

leaching industries. The prison officials should 
adopt a new attitude. Al present, the prisoner- 
are known only by numbers. They should be 
treated as men. The public can do their part and 
aid in obtaining employment for ex-convicts. On 
the whole, there are plentj of institutions; but the 
need is for readjustment. All penal institutions 
should be under one head. Proper prison industries 
would provide for convicts' families. There should 
1« proper medical and psychological examinations 
before committing the prisoner to any prison, and 
a public defender to serve as counsel for those who 
cannot afford to hire one. All possible means should 
I"' taken to make successful the effort to rebuild the 
lives of men committed to the charge of the State 


What is the matter with Wellesley? Are we to 

acknowledge that men have finer sympathies 
than women, and that men's colleges are our 
infinite superiors in their response to a world-wide 
appeal of suffering? Women have had a rep- 
utation for fineness in these matters. The 
ked-( 'ross movement itself, was started by a woman. 
Women have led in nearly all the philanthropic 
movements of the decade. Is Wellesley going to 
make a black mark on that fine record? 

Listen in this: Yale has raised mone) to sup- 
port twelve Red Cross ambulances, three of which 
have gone to England, France, Austria antl Ger- 
many, respectively. Harvard has raised money 
for live; one for England, one for France, Austria, 
( iermany and Belgium. Wellesley has not yet 
raised money for one; the fund lacks S150. There 
will be a further extension of time, during which we 
hope the deficit may be made up generously. 
Money will be received by the head of the Red 
Cross work in each house. The efficiency of the 
ambulance corps is so high that we arc privileged 
to be able to help it and those who have not al- 
ready given will probably lie glad of the further 


What has happened that only seventy-eight per- 
sons have bought tickets to the splendid course of 
lectures arranged by the committee? We can 
scarcely invite famous speakers to address an 
audience comprising only six per cent, of a sup- 
posedly intelligent college. There are few sublet Is 

on which we need more enlightenment than Child 
Labor, the Tariff and the War. liny your tickets 
immediately, from either Lucy Taussig in Beebe 
or Alice Phillips in Wood. 


Because ol the success of the practise lasl year. 
the chapel will be open for devotion and prayer 
each afternoon of the presenl Lenten season, until 
six o'clock. Daily prayers, similar to those used 
before, will be found at ihe entrance.

that are especially strengthening and appetizing for 
ten to twelve "magenlcranken," as I call them, everj 
day: Rice prepared with apples; rice in milk, with 
preserves; cherrj juice with farina; Quaker Oats 
(hardly known in this part of the world) with 
cream; rice-flour porridge with raspberrj juice 

must of this prepared with a generous lump ol g I 

butter and eggs beaten up and mixed with the 
cereals. Sometimes I give them corn-starch pud 
ding with vanilla sauce, or fruit jelly. I also bake 
wheat loaves for them. Mow do I do this.-' Well, 

I was lucky enough to gel a g [-sized bag ol « heal 

Hour jnsl before our wise government put its hand 
on the food-stuffs. Then, all soldiers alike clamor 
for fresh fruit, so I made Karl order a box of spe- 
cially fine apples and oranges. The nurses are 
quite delighted with our gifts, and the sick ones 
naturally rejoice greatly, too. But not all money 
is spent on food. The convalescent soldiers need 

games lo wile away the time, and they ni-r<\ good 
reading, also. So far 1 have given the hospital 
two subscriptions for the "War Lectures" that our 
prominent men — Eucken, Harnack and main- 
others — publish al regular intervals. Houston 
S. Chamberlain, the Germanized Englishman, is 
one of their favorites, even the Jews like him, al- 
though he is anything but fair to them. 

All the while I must not forget my main friends 
al the front who need to be cheered up from time 
io time by a little something. I also try to look 
out for the wives and children of the various brave 
Landwehrmanner that were quartered at our house. 
The)- are so grateful tor any little attention thai is 
paid to their families at home. 

Being concerned about your purse, I wrote you 
the other day that you ought to slop sending money 
for a while. But money disappears rapidly now 
thai 1 have found my clear "magenkr.inken." I 
simply cannot sit down to a meal thinking that 
only once a week those poor fellows gel anything 
that is good for them. I know you could not do 
differently, and therefore do not hestitate to ask 
you for fresh funds.

\.,u thai credil cards have been out for two 
week- and more, and thai i Ik- Bow of talk upon 
flunk-notes and grades has dwindled to a mere 
trickle, it is well to look back aui\ reflect. It has 
seemed to more than one girl in college that the 
amount of worrj and tension displayed before 
credil cauls arrived, and thi prominence given to 
grades when they finally came was noticeably 
greater than usual this year. What does ihis indi- 
cate? It indicates a mistaken sense ^>i proportion, 
an emphasis upon the wrong things. A grade is 
the estimate, necessarily arbitrary, which an 
instructor makes upon the quality of work done. 
As such, it should be illuminating to us. it should 
be valued as any other wise opinion. But it is 
ine\ liable that mistakes should be made in grading.

\n Intercollegiate Conference was held at Vassar 
College from February nineteenth to twenty-first, 
al which seven delegates were present, represent- 
ing thi I in. Mm Associations of Mi. Holyoke, 
Smith, Bryn Vlawr and Wellesley. Several closed 
meetings and one open our were held, at which 
likeness and differences of the associations were 

brougl it. Wellesley was looked up to as one of 

the mosl efficient organizations. Our General 
Secretary and our affiliation with the National 
Voung Women's Christian Associations wen- of 
especial interest. 

Main questions were discussed, one of which 
was Chapel Attendance. At Vassar, Chapel is 
compulsory, and I was much impressed by seeing 
every seal filled at the service, which comes at seven 
o'clock each evening. Al Mt. Holyoke, the Student 
1 ,,,\ ,111111, in Association voted to have compulsory 
I hapel. What can we do to increase our chapel 
attendance? Perhaps we are not in the habit of 
going; perhaps we don't get enough out of the sere- 
ice. Whatever the reason is, something ought to 
be dune, so that at least two-thirds of our chapel 
seats are Idled. Won't everyone make an effort to 
go at least twice a week. Is it asking too much?

Every business worth doing is a form of service in 
that it accommodates as many persons in as many 
ways .1- possible and is, therefore, serving a great 
ideal. The element of good-will is essential to the 
successful transaction of business, and so, business 
can be brought near to religion in a practical way. 
Village Meeting. 

The subjeel of the meeting at St. Andrew's, 
Februarj 24, was "Give to the world the best you 
have and the best will come back to you." Marie 
Henze, 1918, spoke on the subject in its practical 
application to us in our daily intercourse with each 
,11 her. 

Helen Mitchell, 1918, spoke of the way in which 
the life of Alice Freeman Palmer illustrates this 
principle of giving and by the very act of giving, 
gaining true happiness. 


During the week, February 22nd to 26th, in- 
clusive, there have been held the brief afternoon 
services which characterize our annual Week of 
Prayi r. I he quid half-hour in the (hapel in the 
ion, has been of great value to those who 
made use of 1 heir opporl unities. 

Ml i\n w . 

Ih, firsl afternoon meeting was conducted by 
the Rev. Willard L. Sperry, who spoke on "The 
Mind of Christ." W< cannot, he said, guess "what 
would Jesus do?" in the various situations of life. 
Jesus left us no set of regulations, but a point of 
view, which, if we adopt it, will settle those matters 
for us. Perhaps the chief characteristic of this 
mind, or point of view, of Christ, is its universality. 
The spirit of Christ take9 no account of artificial, 

vertical carriers, such as race or patriotism. Chris- 
tianity i- internationalism. All differences are 
gone when we at hie\ e 1 he Mind of ' In ist.

Mi" 1 iamble spoke al the service in the ( h tpi I

Prayer." We are accustomed, said Miss Gamble, 
to think ol asking a> the only kind of prayer. Ad- 
oration, however, is more fundamental. It is more 
than simply asking, it is a realization of our own weak- 
ness, and it is a social, nol an individual act, where- 
by we shifl our perspective in approach to God. The 
value of prayers of confession lies in the realization 
they give of our sins, through our particularizing 
■>f them. In regard to prayer of petition, although 
Christ said, "your Father knows of what ye have 
need," lie also told us to pray, and St. Paul said, 
"In everything let your requests be made known." 

There arc reasons for the setting of definite times 
for prayer, said Miss Gamble. In the first place, 
il we do not set a time, we will not pray. Secondly, 
if we do not set a time in the week, or year, we will 
not take time enough for prayer, for it takes time 
and quiet to pray thoughtfully. Finally, there are 
associations connected with certain times and days 
which make them, for many, especially valuable as 
times of prayer. 


The gathering in the Chapel Wednesday after- 
noon took the form of a "meeting for worship after 
the manner of Friends." The hour was one of 
quiet meditation and prayer. 

Rev. Ernest G. Guthrie spoke Thursday after- 
noon on "Questions concerning the efficacy of 
Prayer." He answered definite questions which 
had been handed to him, such as, "Should I pray- 
to God if He is not a personality to me?" "Why 
should I pray, since God is an all-good God?" 
Consciousness of one's own needs should call forth 
prayer, and through the practise of prayer will 
come more personal knowledge of God. 


Dr. Raymond Calkins spoke on Friday, February 
26, at the Week of Prayer service, on the subject 
of "Sainthood as a practical calling." Dr. Calkins 
said he wished to change our popular idea of a 
saint as a person set apart for excessive piety, to 
the conception of a person who has so dedicated 
his life to God that he is able to make God real to 
other people. In this sense, sainthood is possible 
to everyone. 


Dean Waite spoke on Saturday on "The In- 
ward Life," emphasizing the need" of solitude for 
its development. 


Sunday afternoon there was a quiet half-hour of 
music, meditation and prayer, under the leadership 
of Miss Pendleton, with Professor Hamilton at 
the organ.

in this region pledged lumber, 1 icj and labor, 

.mil "Mr. Willi. mi Creech, whose whole life has 
been lived far back in these mountains where he 
has thought out, unhelped, his ideal "I education," 
tells lis in the following letter why he gave oni 
hundred thirty-six acres of land for ihis school: 

"I wanl iii tell ins reasons why I want a school 
here .11 Pine Mountain. There is so main of our 
young folks growing up here not even taught up 
as to Morality, li grici ed me co think that parents 
would raise iluir children under such rulings. I 
see no chance to better it without we teach l ] 1 ■ ■ 
young generation that they can't never prosper 
while they follow the old ones' Example. I have 
been thinking about this some thirty years oi- 

"There being lots of whiskey and wickedness in 
ill. Community where my Grandchildren must lie 
Raised was a very serious thing for mc to study 
about. I heard two of my neighbors say there 
was neither I leaven or Hell. One of them said 
that when a man was dead he was just as same as 
a dumb beast. I heard another one say who had 
a large Family that he was afraid he could not raise 
his children as mean as he wanted them to be and 
it looked to me as if our country was going hack 
into Heathenism, which worried mc a great deal. 
My idea was that if we could gel a good school here 
and gel tin children interested it would help Moral- 
ize the country. If we can bring our children to 
see the error of the liquor we can squash it. 

"Some places hereabouts are so Lost from Knowl- 
edge that the young tins have never been taught 
1 he knowledge of reading and writing and don't 
know the country they were Borned in or what 
Stale or County they was borned. We need a 
whole lot of teaching how to work on the farm and 
how to make their farms pay, also teaching them 
how to take care of their timber and stuff they're 
wasting. In the way they farm and doing no good 
it is hardening them and they are turning to public 

works too many of them 

"One reason for me getting so liberal with the 
school was tin- great work that I had been reliable 
informed that these Ladies had done at Hindman, 
Knott Co., Ky., me knowing that the school could 
not be anj special benefit to me but hoping that it 
would be a benefit to my Grandchildren and all 
the community around me so that 1 may spend 
mj Last days in a quite moral and peaceable country 
and a benefit for the yet unborn children of this 
country. As I have put almost all I have into the 
Building of the new school anil other Friends are 

coming to our assistance to help us I feel ii a great 

work and would lie glad if all who can would help, 
as life is short and death certain and 1 think it 
would lie much better to help with I he new school 

than to lax up treasures here on earth."

ol the successful growth of the scl I as told by 

Miss de Long in her letter-.

Ann Murdock, in a pretentious American comedy, 
"A Girl of To-day," at the Mollis Street Theater 
on March 1st. 

The author of Miss Murdock's new play is Porter 
Emerson Browne, who wrote "A Fool There Was" 
and "The Spendthrift." The interest in the 
girl becomes cumulative, for the plot is absolutely 
plausible and the play well written. Its love in- 
terest is sweet without being mawkishly so. "A 
Girl of To-day" is a work that through cleverness 
of its story reaches straight for the heart strings 
and takes a strong hold on them. — Adv.

The farce is from a foreign source and has been 
bought up to date and Americanized by Mark 
Swan. It is an interesting comedy and well worth

ni "the Wellesle) squirrels" .1- witne 1 the 

laying of the corner-stone of College Hall in 1 

Were tiles ? 

Some other "earls girl " may lie able to convict 
me of "1 he unseeing eye" recently discussed in 
your columns when I say that 1 do not remember 
seeing squirrels at Wellesley in the years 1875 
I have .1 mosl vivid recollection of the Wellesle) 
violets and anemones and mj : "\ in them, the 
birdfoot violel having been previouslj unknown 
to me. Though I Mad not then been led to observe 
and identify birds. I treasure the mcmoi 
solitarj walk to Point Tupelo when a downy woo 
pecker silently alighted on .1 tree close bj me, and 
I still see the flaming of .t scarlet tanagcr's wing 
among the trees above, as I sat in the rustic pa\ ilion 
by the lake. I even remember the gliding ol .1 flat 
black striped snake through the underbrush near 
the then u nn.i ine.l I ongfcllow Fountain. But not 
.1 squirrel can I recall. 

In the spring of 1900, when making a little \ i-it 
to Professor Hallowell, 1 observed ami remarked 
on tile presence of the squirrels. Her replj 
thai "when the cats and chipmunks were driven 
out, the gray and red squirrels came in." Cats and 
chipmunks seemed to me as singular allies .1- Eng- 
land and Russia, but the conversation took another 
turn before I could ask for dates and furthei 1 v 
planation. tan anyone tell when the gray squirrel 
matriculated and whether he entered on certificate 
or passed a satisfactory examination? 

Rut if 1 have forgotten the squirrels. I have not 
forgotten "I'll abeth." 1 well remember the quiet 
dignitj with which she presided at class meetings 
and her frequent references to Cushing (an author 
to me unknown) in her desire that all should In- 
done decently and in order. Ii was characteristic 
of her to be chagrined .u anything like a the. g 
discussion at table and in the presence ~'i voting 
preparatorj department girls. With responsibili- 
ties of missionary society, lire brigade, student 
government an embryo . organization 01' literary 
societies and all. it is no wonder that her strength 
proved unequal to completing the course. 1 re-

Btudenl .ii VVi II I I 9 Ph D. 1 niversjty 

of Berni Switzerland, 1894, From the review in 

"'I In- Nation" we q ■ the following: 

"Dr. Clough ».i- -i typical American of ih<- 
Middle West, and when in 1864, after ,i Btrenuous 
training .1- pioneer's son and later .1- student in 
one ol the new Western colleges, he went to India 
.,- Baptist missionar} to thi Telugus, he carried 
with him the characteristics of his time and countrj 
tness, energy, self-confidence, provincial- 
ism, adaptability, and c plete devotion. And 

the problem what will happen when this sort of 
man k'" ,s to work in .1 societj like thai ol il><- low- 
caste Madigas ol the Telugu country, explains the 
fascination of ilii- most interesting book. When he 
landed .11 Madras ii was with the conviction that 
everything in Hinduism was bad and ought to be 
torn up and replaced by what he had to bring; and 
that n dj American Bapl isl theolog) , but Ameri- 
can I!.c|,im methods must be transplanted bodil) 
to India. As the years passed I grew tolerant, and 
often 1 1 1I1 1 the caste people if they could nol or would 
not receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour, to serve 
1 heir own gods faithfully. During my visits to 
Vmerica I sometimes told American audiences that 
the Hindus wiT'.' in some respects better than they. 
"But the effects wrought l>y Dr. Clough on the 
Madigas were certainly quite as great as those 
which thej produced on him. He »as enabled in 
.1 few years to extend Christian influence into a 
large number of villages in the immediate neigh- 
borhood. I lis work, however, was entirely among 
the low-caste Madigas, as the higher castes would 
have nothing to do with low-caste Christians and 
their teachers. During the great famine of 1877 
Dr. Clough, acting as surveyor and contractor for 
the British Government in the construction of a 
Canal, was able i" give work to ail who wished it, 
and thus save thousands of lives. The following 
year, in part as a result of the fear of death caused 
by the famine, most of the Madigas in the district 
who had been hesitating on the verge of Christianity , 
came to Dr. Clough and begged for baptism. Dr. 
Clough at first refused, fearing to cheapen Indian 
Christianity, and feeling uncertain of the genuine- 
ness of their conversion. But they were insistent, 
and after careful examination by the native preach- 
ers, most of them seemed to be really worthy. So 
at length Dr. Clough yielded; 2,222 were baptized 
in one day, and during six weeks nearly 9,000. 
When he left India fur the last time in 1903 the 
Telugu mission had 100 missionaries, 60,000 mem- 
bers, and 200,000 adherents. 

"Dr. Clough's book throws considerable light on 
three of the most pressing problems of modern 
missions: nani.-K , 1 u . r - - conversion, church organi- 
zation and self-support. The old missionary aim, 
writes Mrs. Clough, in her preface, had been to 
seek the conversion of individuals: to get them de- 
tached from their previous lile, one bj one, and 
gathered into churches. Dr. Clough did not dis- 
card this aim; he added to it his facultj of getting 
hold of men. Early in his career he recognized 
the important of the social group; he left men in 
ii .md Christianized the group. Family cohesion 
and tribal characteristics were factors with which 
he reckoned. Yel it must be added that Dr. 
Clough used the mass method with great caution, 
never baptizing a "convert" till In- had made 
reasonably sure "i hi- conversion.

"lie found it best to adopt the Indian village 
rather than the church as his unit, and to allow the 
Christian community to govern itself on the lines 
of their village customs rather than according to the 
rules of the American Baptist Association. At the 
closj of his career he wrote: T have been asked 
what I would do if I were once more at the begin- 
ning of my missionary career; would I bend all 
my energies to efforts of church organization, or 
would I make it my chief aim to preach the gospel 
of Jesus? I unhesitatingly say: I would let all 
the rest go, and just preach Jesus as the Saviour 
of men. I am glad 1 did all in my power to give 
educational opportunities to the people. I would 
again raise up large native agency. I would again 
organize groups of believers, serving God in the 
simple ways of their village life. I would again do 
all I could for their social betterment. I can well 
bear the criticism that I failed in organizing churches 
on a self-supporting basis. The day will come when 
Western people will cease to expect the people of 
the East to adopt their customs and forms of thought 
along with their faith in Jesus.' "
